  • Usually my M5 is in the drawer. I much prefer the 80D for almost everything. Only when I really need to travel light, I use the M5!
  • 1) Make sure the lens is on the latest firmware (you will need the Sigma Dock) 2) Test if the lens focuses correctly in Live View mode (most copies will with the latest firmware) 3) Test if the ...
  • Created discussion thread Advise for 3rd camera for video
    I hope somebody can give me advice for a video project: Recently I started to add video to an existing audio-only podcast. It is mostly "talking heads" style with 2 people, with some B-Roll, output ...
  • Thanks for this link, great read! It seems to be more complicated than 4K>3k>2k 😂
  • Created discussion thread Why not 3K video?
    When people argue in favour of 4K, it is often said that shooting in 4K and output in 1080p gives you better quality, cropping ability and allows for digital stabilization in post. So far so good. ...
  • The Fuji X-T3 is a tempting upgrade to my Canon M5... Do you consider it seriously? I see that you already of the X-T2. If Canon does not include decent video capabilities in the M5 II (4k with no ...
  • I've made similar experiences. There are few cameras that do nice 1080p out-of-the-box. For example I think the 1080 output of a Canon C100 II is so muuuuch better than using my Canon 80D. Usually ...
  • Well, 4K (without crop) would be higher spec, 24MP would be lower spec. It must not be lower spec in every category to count as "entry level"... Maybe it is just my whishful thinking! :-)
  • That would be fine, if it supports 4k + DPAF! With a 24-26 MP, there is hope they can improve readout-speed to support it. Although, one never knows. If one camera manufacturer dares releasing a ...
  • Have you tried Apple‘s Shortcut app? You could automate the sharing once your images are in the Photos app.
  • It will fit, I am sure. If the successor will be a DSLR it will be EF-S mount and fit. If the successor is mirrorless, it will be RF-Mount and fit with the adapter.
  • I use two Yongnuo YN600EX-RT II mostly with a Yongnuo YN-E3-RT Transmitter. Works fine with my 80D and M5 (latter only after flash firmware update).
  • Currently I own an 80D an the M5 and a couple of EF, EF-S and EF-M. But I plan to switch my 80D for an R camera in the next 1-2 years. I won’t buy any EF-S anymore. There aren’t any interesting ...
  • One interesting thing I have not noticed so far in other reviews: When using the battery grip in vertical mode you do not have a joystick and no easy access to the touchscreen to select your ...
  • Thanks, although the single numbers are just guesses. It took me some time to remember how to calculate it correctly... 😉 You can even have two failures on subsequent days! 😬
  • Well, I think regarding the M system the term "investment" is a bit excessive - there are not so many lenses available! :-P The more I read in this thread the more I think I got it right. I will ...
  • Well I think this remote features could serve two purposes: 1) As a simple backup solution (I suppose it will not be as stable as a second card) but it would still decrease the likelihood of a card ...
  • I am quite happy about the IQ of my M5, and I mainly have it for low weight. So thanks alot for pointing out the weight differences. The price will be much higher as well, but this is not my main ...
  • Thank you very much for your detailed reply! I think I will have to try out Fuji's control methodology. Although I am used to Canon's PASM dial, as you point out, sometimes it feels a bit ...
  • Thanks for your reply. And please do not feel offended. I didn't want argue about your recommendation, I just didn't understand it in the first place. Thanks for clarification.
